92 Home-field Advantage

 What about the 'combined bullet'?

Witnessing the scene, all the live viewers had delayed reactions to what had just happened.

From the Observer's camera, they clearly saw the exact instance the two players peaked out of the garage room.

In the three-story building, Liu Zilang suddenly revealed his head as he peeked out. Locking in on his target with inhumane speed, he used his M24 sniper to fire a single shot!

That shot instantly knocked out Zhang Qing, turning their so-called 'combined bullet' into nothing but a joke.

...

On the University of Jianghai's side, Jiang Xinou was slightly startled when he saw the ID Vic123 pop up. However, a grin instantly appeared on his face.

'Is this that God of Pubstomps that had that 35-frag game?

'How interesting.'

Since players did not have access the Observer's spectator camera, other than the live audience, viewers, and the two commentators, at that moment, the players only knew of the presence of 'Improud_whatareyougoingtodoaboutit' and 'Vic123' in the game. However, they had no idea that those two were on the same team. It would be even more impossible for them to know that those two accounts that they had heard of had been used by the same person...

This was also why Jiang Xinou was not worried at all when he saw the ID 'Vic123' pop up.

In his eyes, he did not think that Liu Zilang was a match for him.

It seemed to him that the only person worthy of his attention in the competition was 'Improud_whatareyougoingtodoaboutit' that made even one of Asia's Top Three Sniper Gods - Bai Shaobin yield in another game the other day.

...

In the three-story building near the police station, after Chen Zhifei had been helped up by Ran Maodong, he could not help but take a deep breath. He started to rant, "F*ck! These motherf*ckers! All I did was just bloody peek for a second and they immediately knocked me out! Kill them off!"

"No problem!" Ran Maotong and Pu Taizhuang answered in unison.

As they finished talking, all three squad mates unconsciously looked over toward Liu Zilang.

If they had met a squad of god-tier players like members of the University of Jianghai Team One in the past, they would have ran away without hesitation even if they were being chased down by the said squad. They for sure would not challenge the said squad head-on. At that time, maintaining their rank would be more important.

However, in the current point of time, they had a 'true god-tier' player like Liu Zilang in their team. As such, their attitude had also changed. Naturally, they started to look down on the 'minor deities' on the other squad.

Listening to the enthusiasm from the other three, Liu Zilang who was still camping by the window as hugged his M24 shrugged. "I have no problem with that as well."

At that moment, Lord Rong and Meng Yeqing had seen the line-of-sight of the two sides, recognizing their mutual intentions to fight it out.

Seeing what was happening, Lord Rong helplessly shook his head. "Never would I have thought that these two squads would want to battle it out to the death in this situation. As a commentator, it hurts for me to see this situation unfold. However, since it has come to this, there's nothing better both sides can do."

Meng Yeqing curiously blinked her eyes beside him as she asked in a soft tone, "If these two fight, which side does Lord Rong think has a higher chance of winning?"

"Hmm..." Lord Rong hemmed and hawed for a moment, before shaking his head. "I really can't say. In a competitive co-op battle royale like PUBG, a lot of times, it doesn't just come down to each player's technical skills. Other variables such as squad coordination and how the players make use of their map knowledge have to be weighed. The Fantastic Four undoubtedly is being carried by two gurus, but as we just saw, the players of the University of Jianghai Team One obviously have a better grasp of Mylta in general."

Meng Yeqing exclaimed, "Oh! The University of Jianghai Team One is coming out of the garage. They're using every aspect of the map they can as cover as they slowly make their way over to the building the Fantastic Four are camping in! Fantastic Four seems to have trouble following their movements and finding out their actual position."

Lord Rong nodded as he looked on. "This is why I said that map knowledge is also a very important variable in the game. The University of Jianghai Team One seems to have played a lot in Mylta, and this is very likely their primary drop location during regular training sessions. Thus, they can easily move from cover to cover without any problems, perfectly avoiding the enemies' lines-of-sight."

"Mmhmm, maybe this could be considered as their home-field advantage." Meng Yeqing smiled wryly, before continuing her commentary as she watched the screen, "However, now they have to cross the road. There's no cover on the road, is the University of Jianghai Team One really going to make the first move and head over?"

...

By the side of the road, behind the short side of a wall of a house, Jiang Xinou crouched as he surveyed his surroundings.

As the in-game leader of the squad, his job was not only to take note of the squad on the other side of the street but also avoid all unknown variables surrounding his squad.

As he confirmed that there were no traces of any other teams firing or moving over, Jiang Xinou said in a low tone, "Smoke, we'll head straight over. Let's finish this fight before the circle closes in."

"Understood!" The other three replied in unison.

Thinking about the opportunity to fight the legendary God of Pubstomps, the players of the University of Jianghai Team One could not help but rub their palms together in excitement.

Soon, two smoke grenades were tossed onto the road.

"Hiss hiss hiss!"

After the Smoke Grenades rolled on the road briefly, they released a large amount of smoke.

A short moment later, the entire road was enveloped in a shroud of whiteness, completely obscuring anyone's sight.

At the same time, on the other side of the road, since they had already resolved themselves for a battle, Liu Zilang and company did not sit back idly and camp on the third floor waiting to be attacked.

At that point in time, they had already moved downstairs and were camping behind the short wall of the building on their own side.

At first, when Chen Zhifei saw the enemy attempting to push over to their side, he had the urge to start firing at them to gain the 'first shot' advantage. However, he was immediately stopped by Liu Zilang.

Liu Zilang did not give a reason, he just told Chen Zhifei to hold his fire.

At that time, as he saw the Smoke Grenades being tossed out from behind the short wall on the other side of the road, Liu Ziliang's facial expression seemed to imply that everything was going according to plan.

He cheekily grinned. "Okay, since the enemies are so nice as to help us disturb the water, then let's bomb the water and catch the fish."

After looting so many boxes on their way, the squad had picked up a fair share of Frag Grenades.

As soon as Liu Zilang finished, all of them pulled out their respective Frag Grenades and started cooking them.

In the commentator's booth, Lord Rong and Meng Yeqing were utterly stunned by what they were witnessing.

Just as they thought the University of Jianghai Team One was taking the initiative, the Fantastic Four had once again taken the offensive side.

In the end, no one would have expected them to suddenly move downstairs for whatever reason.

Seeing each member of the Fantastic Four pull out their grenades, Lord Rong and Meng Yeqing's eyes started to twitch!

'This feeling, it's a bit...'

...

In the game, as soon as the University of Jianghai Team One saw the smoke spread out, they immediately vaulted over the short wall. With their assaulter in front, their snipers in the middle, and their free positions at the back, the squad moved in like an elite military unit.

However, once they charged into the smoke, Qin Xuanxuan suddenly heard something. She asked in a suspicious tone, "Who tossed another Smoke Grenade?"

The other three people also heard something, they were all stunned.

'Not good!'

Their hearts instantly sank, 'It can't be a Smoke Grenade!'

However, at that time, even more familiar sounds of something hitting the ground and rolling toward them bombarded their ears.

'This sounds like...

'There's at least 10 of them...

'This is too f*cking brutal!'

The few people within the smoke were utterly shocked!

Immediately after that, the white shroud of smoke instantly turned red, seemingly turning the center of the road into a mini 'manual bombardment zone'.

"Boom Boom Boom..."

Accompanied by a chain of explosions, the kill feed on the bottom-left corner of the screen began to appear.

"Vic123 knocked out JD-XuanXuan with Frag Grenade!"

"Underwatercontra knocked out JD-ZQ with Frag Grenade1"

...

"Improud_whatareyougoingtodoaboutit killed JD-MeW with Frag Grenade!"

As their screens faded to black and white, Jiang Xinou and company were still shell-shocked by what had just happened. As they noticed the ID 'Improud_whatareyougoingtodoaboutit' in the kill feed, they were even more shocked.

Jiang Xinou's pupils shrank, his face showed a very complex expression.

...This line directly parodies the 20th of the 36 Strategems of Ancient China by Sun Tzu, which is , or "Disturb the water and catch the fish".
